    Hello,
    Jerry here, with my latest build!

    The story:
    A great friend here, sent me a RotorPixel, gimbal that had been damaged, his bird experienced motor failure, that forced his bird to the ground from 250' up, destroyed bird and gimbal! We rebuilt his bird ( completely ), and it turned out GREAT! ( like a brand new craft ( spare no expense )) But in turn, he gave me this gimbal for helping him breathe new life into his phantom vision, and getting her airborne again! ( although, I asked for nothing , I was doing nothing more than helping a friend out, as should anyone ) but he twisted my arm, so here is what I got, and what I did!

    Ok,
    The untouched gimbal ( only removed from bird:

    ( was damaged and muddy )

    Here are a couple other pics I took ( for plug placement after rebuild )

    Ok,
    From there, I disassembled it completely, finding only 2 BROKEN parts ( 1x brushless motor, and 1x vertical mount ) cost me $80 for the parts shipped!

    Gimbal BROKEN PARTS:

    Disassembled Gimbal: ( wow a lot of parts )

    So after a few hours of Cleaning, oiling, assembling, balancing, zip-tying, ect.
    Here is the end result, Do you like?

    Decided on a Black/White theme, which most know, is TOTALLY out of character for me, but I like it! My wife says put a big STAR on top, it would look like a police vehicle! I said then I'd have to put red/blue flashing LED's on it too! I'll throw a pass on that play! I kinda like it as is!

    Take care, Fly safe!

    It's Sunday were all hung over or eating Sunday lunch pal, nice job on the rebuild though, if your ever selling it let me know. As for the cables I wanted I've had to put a hold on it as I've spent to much money on my holiday this month to get them.
